“All the way from Zavala to Sveta Nedelja you have many beautiful beaches. It is on the south part of the island where you should bring your sun protection and water! Island of Hvar is famous for the pebble beaches and rocks. At least you will not have sand everywhere for days ;) ”

“From Zavala the old road leads east towards the village of Gromin Dolac below which there are series of perfectly clean, azure blue beaches. Stone houses, some built back in the 17th century as strongholds against pirates, the smells of dense pine forests, with the song of crickets and the calm beauty of nature that completely surrounds this small place will relax all your senses and provide you with an unforgettable vacation.”
